Donald J. Trump’s election as the 45th President of the United States has come at a time of great political polarization – both in the United States and abroad. From issues of globalization and negotiating the role of the U.S. in the world to contentious national debates on the challenges of race, class, and gender in American life, the 45th president will have to address a series of local, national, and global challenges the moment he takes office.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s administration solidified the practical and symbolic importance of a U.S. president’s first 100 days in office, and ever since, each new president faces enormous pressure to use these first 100 days to shape a national agenda.
